  5. The base glass was WHITE and various colors were added sandwiched between crystal glass. There was BLACK aventurine, green aventurine and oxblood added. NO industrial glass was used. This is something that was not ever tried before and we have Jabo's experimentation to thank for these beauties. These marbles on my web site are what the whole run looked like and it was a 6 hour run.

  13. I was cleaning out a big mass of marbles I had in a bag that was WAY back in a corner of my room and I found this marble sitting deep inside a bag with about 100 other marbles. I'd forgotten about it and the bag. Thought I'd share my surprise with you. Here are the first of 3 of 6 pictures of it.
  14. If you go to my web site, you can see some of the tank wash marbles from 2008 thru 2011. http://santasbling.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=123:washout-marbles-2008-2011&catid=39:jabo-machine-made-marbles&Itemid=53 these marbles are very difficult to obtain
  15. It's been a few weeks and NOTHING in my mail Edna? Where are my newsletters?
  16. I still do repair sulphides though. Out of the 175 I have repaired, only 3 have caused problems with the old glass. Rich
  17. Hi birdfancier. I have done several swirl repairs in the past but because of the last 9 repairs I attempted, 7 of them went bad. I alerted the owner before the attempt the risks that are involved with reworking 150 year old glass but they asked me to try it anyway. Exploding glass during the slow warming up process, cracking glass and cracking that split into 4 or 5 individual pieces, glass that survived the warming up but cracked when entered into the flame of my torch.... so on and so on. Because I treat the marble as if were my own, the sheer bad happenings of these 7 out of 9 I have stopped repairing swirls. Prior to these 9, I had a very good success rate out of the 125 or more with only losing 7 due to old glass problems. It hurts me and I can only speculate how the owner feels when I have to contact them (with pictures of course) of what went wrong. This is why I have chosen to stop repairing swirls. My best warning is that, "The old glass will do what IT wants to do." This said, I feel bad when it goes bad for both the owner and the glass. An example of the craftsmanship and a piece of glass history goes bad and I couldn't help it makes me feel bad enough to cease trying to repair the marble. It isn't about the money I get for the repair, it's the bad feelings I get when one goes bad. Anyway, that is why I have stopped repairing swirls. Rich
  18. If you go to http://santasbling.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=section&layout=blog&id=5&Itemid=53 you can see the start of my documenting D.A.S. LLC marbles. Rich
  19. I have several old marbles that have kiln brick debris in them but the ones I have from Jabo certainly are different because the rocks are bigger than the marbles i have from the old days.
